Kumamoto Gakuen University has a long history of active participation in international exchange. From its inauguration in 1942 as the Institute of Oriental Languages where English, Chinese, Malay, and Russian were taught, the tradition of "world-watching" educational research has continued. KGU has valued independence, freedom, and cooperation since its foundation. Its three main educational principles are: "Deep Respect for Freedom and Liberty", "Mutual Friendship between Teachers and Students", and "Warm Heart of One School as One Family".
A wide range of majors is offered in the Japanese language: Commerce, Management, Economics, International Economics, Anglo-American Studies, East Asian Studies and Social Welfare. For students not fluent in Japanese, more limited courses are available.
